ARE, Sweden - Lindsey Vonn has won a women's World Cup downhill race on Saturday, just weeks after concussion curtailed her world championship campaign.

Vonn was slightly behind Slovenia's Tina Maze at the first time split on the Olympia course but won in 1 minute, 40.93 seconds.

Maze was .13 seconds behind Vonn, while overall World Cup leader Maria Riesch of Germany was .21 seconds back in third.

Vonn was racing for the first time since withdrawing from the latter part of the world championships because of a concussion in pre-competition training. She finished sixth in Friday's super-combined race.

Swiss skier Nadja Kamer crashed heavily. Her injuries were not immediately known.

The 24-year-old Kamer caught the tip of her left ski in the safety netting as she took a turn too wide near the top section of the Olympia course.

Kamer then spun round twice, flew across the side of the course on her back, then onto her front before hitting the netting. Her injuries were not immediately known.

"Everyone was sitting next to the TV at the start and was like 'Oh no!'," Riesch said. "I think the course setting was not good at this section ... This was not the safest way to set (the course)."
